An ancient grudge. A forbidden love
The only thing worse than being a demon is being a Valari. As an undergraduate at Los Angeles’s Alameda University, Kara Valari can sometimes succeed at forgetting she’s both. Lost between the pages of the classics and tucked into the shadows of lecture halls, she can dodge the paparazzi’s lenses as well as her family’s publicized dramas—not to mention their private expectations. She has one more year to feed her true passions. Then she’ll be expected to fulfill a much darker destiny
Cursed with inexplicable strength and god-like stature, literature professor Maximus Kane knows all about darkness. Every day he’s reminded of the missteps of his childhood and the devastating consequences they’ve had on those dearest to him. To atone, Maximus spends his nights alone and his days submerged in the quiet life of academia. His existence has become a study in control, and he’s become a master at it—until Kara Valari walks into his toughest course
Viscerally, Kara’s everything he craves. Logically, she’s everything he rejects. She’s a starlet of privilege. She’s also a student. And after one touch, he can’t deny that she’s awakened something in him that may never go dormant. Nothing about her makes sense, but everything about her feels right. Especially in the deepest strands of his DNA, which are still shadows of mystery to him—a mystery Kara seems determined to uncover
She’s Hollywood royalty. She’s forbidden fruit. And he’s pretty sure she could be the answer to everything.

…I realize that I’m not breathing. There is something bizarre and forbidden and different about Kara Valari. But something warm and familiar and right too. So damn right…-Max
Not my first read by both authors, though Angel I have not read in a very long time. Meredith’s books I’ve been in love with since my very first reads many moons ago so naturally I was excited to be able to try my FIRST PARANORMAL ROMANCE so that also got me excited. I really always wanted to try it and couldn’t think of a better author duo to dive into.
Not my first read by both author’s, I have read all of Meredith’s books and Angel Payne’s it’s been a while since I’ve read one of her books. WHAT A POWER COMBO they both are. This is my FIRST PARANORMAL romance though, and I mean REALLY FIRST…I’ve always wanted to try it and here I am. IN LOVE WITH THIS from the first page. Now, I don’t know what’s right or wrong or normal or not when it comes to this but from what I’ve read, I liked it ALL.
Professor Maximus is a man that has lived always wondering…always wondering, what happened, why him, what he is…what’s the truth?! Always in the back of his head but he found himself lost and able in books. Something he couldn’t hurt, and that was structured..with a happy ending. That’s all until Kara walks into his course. He isn’t sure what the pull is or fascination. When Kara walks into the course Maximus Kane teaches, she keeps to the back…better that way. Now this is where the part of I am not sure whats right how to word it but Kara is a Demon and she can sense and feel people, but Maximus gives off something else, something unknown to her but the pull is too strong to not want to explore it.
I don’t want to get into detail of the book because I still think you need to have that excitement I felt reading it. But I want to say since this is my first time reading paranormal, I don’t know if it’s the ladies and it was heavy on the Romance (which I love) but gosh, I couldn’t put it down. The Demon and her side of the family, hell, god like creature and so forth really just worked for me in this. This is a cliffy and well I’ll just be hanging over here waiting for Book #2 which I will be anticipating very much! So happy I gave this a try!
A MUST READ!
